Irina and Eric have been really busy the past few weeks drawing up a storm of new Marci's and Luka's at La La Land Crafts, and Boy o Boy they are the cutest EVER.... well for now anyway!!! LOL

Today I get to show off Water Can Marci!!  and Travel Marci!!!!! but first let me tell you about Water can Marci, I just love her cute little sun visor with the big flower.... and I just had to have the cute little bumble bees buzzy all around her!!! So here she is I hope you love her as much as me:-)

I've also used the super cute Sunflowers which are also brand new.... I've only used 2 of the 3 and I have fussy cut them out, they took forever to do, but so worth it I think:-)

So like I said, I also get to show off Travel Marci.... I think she is so much like me - well what I used to be a little jetset kinda girl, travelling all over the world... So here she is I hope you love her just as much as me:-)

I've used some really yummy papers from Pink Paislee - London Market... and my kite is a My Favourite Things die, which I have used some White card and some grey spots for:-)
